    No plan for this motor really, just freshened up with new rings/bearings, head cleaned and checked, new seals and gaskets etc- Had a blown headgasket when I bought the car and it's done 300xxx so I figured why not.

    Once I've got the car running and on the road, I'll be slapping a h22 in her, high comp pistons, forged rods, ITBs, all the fun stuff.

    Well pulled the motor out again today to drill the holes for the manual tranny mount, way to hot be it needed to be done sooner rather than later.

    Hopefully I'll be turning the key in a few weeks, then getting a exhaust made up, bodywork done, and finish off the brakes

    Would you do me a great favour?
    Measure the total height of the engine.

    Edit: Really nice project!

    Make sure you use compression tubes in the chassis for the tranny mount. Otherwise the chassis will crush, bolts will loosen and cause damage.

    Yeah I was wondering how well the rail would hold up to the stress.

    Bolt shop would sell compression tubes yeah?

    Compession tube is just a bit of pipe. ID slightly larger than the bolt OD.
    Would also be worth welding the end of the tubes to the chassis, so the tubes don't move.

    - Exhaust is all but done (Ran out of mig gas)
    - I have spark, oil pressure, and fuel - So it should run
    - New front rack ends and tie rods
    - Xenon bumpers (courtesy of kozzy)
    - New front wheel bearings

    Aaaaand probably lots of little things.

    Figured the easiest way to keep up, photo-wise is to just shove it all straight on bookface from my phone.

    So here's pre much everything so far, minus a few bits and bobs cause my phone died a few months back
